International Teletext Art Festival 2013 Wises Fwom The Gwave

Rise From Your Grave teletext
Teletext Will Wise Again!

Fancy a spot of time travel, Marty? Forget the fact we’re now in March 2014, because there’s unfinished business – it’s time to hop into our hyperspeed DeLoreans and head all the way back to… well, 2013. Ladies and gentlemen, ITAF Finland is underway, with artwork from last year’s International Teletext Art Festival now on YLE Text. And you know what that means – shameless Illarterate promo time!

Okay, I’m not going to pretentiously thumb through my entries, at least for the time being. Unless you want me to, that is. But I *am* going to start collecting related news articles and such over at my new(ish) Twitter account, namely @illarterate, if you’re the slightest bit interested.

Oh, and the above image does not feature, but if enough people ask nicely I will submit it for the 2014 iteration of The World’s Greatest Teletext Art Festival As Endorsed By Illarterate. Power uppppp.

View ITAF on YLE Text here (ends 20/04/14).

I know nothing about art; as a rule, 'modern' graphic design does not appeal to me. I like to write in the first person because I do not want to be someone else.

Influences: public toilet cubicle drawings/slogans; WordArt posters in Market Street shop windows; Mega-Zine; bootleg vinyl artwork; Janne Suni; Pink Floyd; whoever is responsible for the Max Headroom hijacking incident; Collie, the Inept Reviewer.
